This excel workbook contains a series of sheets to help students explore different types of composite functions including linear, quadratic and reciprocal functions.
The first sheet allows students to input different numbers into a flowchart showing two different linear functions. Students work out and can check the expression for the composite function which is then simplified. The next four sheets involve linear-quadratic and linear-reciprocal composite functions.
In the final two sheets students combine two functions then solve an equation. Some of the solutions to the quadratic equations are given to 3 significant figures.
